Q & A
I originally worked in the educational system for seven years. Helping many people from elementary school to Middle school. Today I work with the intellectual disability community and raising awareness in mental health. I write for a living because it is a talent I have. To be able to create a fictional world with scenarios and challenges is amazing. I do it because it is a passion i have.
In 2015, I released book one of a trilogy. The story focuses on a teenager named Kamel Johnson. He receives a phone call from an unidentified number who is revealed to being a serial Killer. The two characters cross paths and thus begins the epic story of good vs. evil, right vs. wrong and doing whatever it takes to save the day, plus solve a mystery. This is my most recent work because I’ve invested over 10 years working on this story. And till this day, it remains one of my focuses along with a future sequel and trilogy.
My mother and God inspired me every day. In the writing world, I look to Stephen King, James Patterson and Maya Angelou. My late English teacher, Richard Notice plays a huge role in my path as a writer.
The poems I have written and the prequel/sequel to the 31 Days to Live series.
Live by faith, not by sight.
Hoping someone picks up my story and says to themselves, “Let’s turn this into a movie or show on Netflix.”
Don’t be the problem, be the solution.
I would like to be remembered for being an optimistic person. I have tried to put smiles on faces and make the best of life. Despite my flaws and setbacks. I have done some extraordinary things and it has brightened up my day. Hopefully others too.
The Kill All Project is the prequel of 31 Days to Live taking three to four years before the events of the current book that has recently been revamped. Date to be announced. Would love to do a summer release.
You can visit Amazon, Barnes and noble websites or several other platforms where books are sold. Just type in 31 Days to Live or Lorenzo Dozier. Be on the look out for a updated version for 2018. Stay tuned for the sequel coming soon.
